Grown in China's southern Yunnan Province, our Tippy Golden Yunnan has a superbly sweet, honeyed taste, with a hint of spice and a wisp of Lapsang-style smokiness. Harvested by hand, the large, bright leaves have an abundance of golden tips; the result is a richly russet brew with some of the malty robustness of a classic Assam and all the fruity complexity of a Chinese Keemun tea.
We tend to brew this tea lightly to appreciate its layered, full-bodied taste and floral clarity, but it also holds its own against a splash of milk.
Malty, Refreshing, Rich
Sweet and fruity, with light, smoky notes
An alternative to English Breakfast especially if served with brunch
Lovely at breakfast, ideally
Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be enjoyed with or without milk.

The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…
The finest varieties of Yunnan tea are cultivated on bushes descended from indigenous wild tea trees. Yunnan is reputed to be home to the world's oldest tea tree, estimated to be 3200 years old we've given this tea the number 32 as a reminder of its roots
Although most associate tea with North India, it's well worth discovering this sublime, carefully crafted variety from South India's Nilgiri Hills. Kala Moti translates as black pearl', producing a fragrant fruity brew with a slightly nutty finish. Rich yet still refreshingly light, it's a tea to take without milk to enjoy its subtle layers of flavour.More Details
This Flowery Orange Pekoe tea from the southern province of Yunnan in China has a rich, malty taste which you could compare to a full-bodied Assam. The golden buds of the young leaves give it that molten treacle sweetness and the slightest suggestion of spice and smoke. It's lovely with a little milk as an alternative breakfast brew.More Details
This tea takes its name from the camel-drawn caravans which travelled the ancient trade routes through Russia to the tea-tables of Europe. A century in the making, this was one of our very first blends: a combination of rich Indian tea, smoky Lapsang Souchong and refreshing Nepalese tea to mellow that campfire smokiness.More Details
